DOOM

Just in case you were worried that there wouldn’t be enough blood and gore, or enough enemies to obliterate, in the next entry in the DOOM franchise, never fear. The launch trailer highlights that there’ll be plenty to pulverise.

The minute long trailer shows off some pretty locations, some massive monsters and a few of the weapons that’ll be on offer when the game releases on May 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

DOOM is back! With a brutal single-player campaign, iconic fast-paced multiplayer, and the ability to create and play your own levels with SnapMap, DOOM delivers all the guns, demons and action you’ve been craving. It’s time to Fight Like Hell.

Not to dwell too much on the eye candy, Bethesda also released some information on when you’ll be able to pre-load the game, and what it’ll take to play it at its best on PC.
